Take a Guess

What did Tony talk about today?

a) The cicadas
b) His golf game
c) His son having a concert
d) all of the above

If you said D, you'd be correct.

You can pretty much guess what what said Tony, since you've probably heard it before. :>

Eddie Jordan and Frasier Crane

The show began with the boys and TK talking about the Zards, since Eddie Jordan was a guest panelist on the George Michael basketball show. He was filling in for Mayor McCheese, who is still out covering the basketball playoffs. TK said he was a good guest.

Things turned to TV, as they talked about the end of Frasier (and nicely quoted me on some sitcom facts I sent Czabe a few weeks ago). TK didn't watch it much in recent years, but it had a great pedigree.

The segment closed with a discussion about American Idol and LaToya being voted off last night. Again, talk about racism came up, but Czabe said it was more like "stupidism."

Yes, more Cicada Talk

We begin by discussing guest David Aldridge's new baby.

Then, onto the Cicadas. Andy again brought up how panicked the transplants seem to be around town. TK, however, thinks their anxiety is great and hope they will leave town, making the traffic a little lighter.

TK is apparently worried that Maggie will eat tons of Cicadas and then "puke them up on his bed in the middle of the night."

After coming "face to face" with a cicada, TK was unnerved enough by their beaddy-little eyes to run away from them.

How long has been since the Cicadas were here? The Wizards were good then. Not to mention they weren't the Wizards then.

We also briefly talked about Kobe's big game last night, another contest after jetting in from Colorado.

How late is late for Mr Tony?

Tony was apparently not invited to the Joe Jacoby golf tournament held today. TK speculates that it might be because he beat Jacoby. Not that he could have played today anyway, due to PTI.

TK, along with Andy, Steve and Chris Knocke, discussed how late the NBA game was last night. Tony said that's why highlight shows are for, after all. When discussing Peja's no call, Czaban actually dropped the phrase "prima fica."

TK also talked about the ESPN25 special, which he taped with Bob Ley, Dick Enberg and Ralph Wiley. "It's more fun yelling at Wilbon that what I did today." TK is, surpisingly, not having dinner tonight with Bob F Ley. Enberg was apparently very funny talking about the late Al McGwire.

With Andy on remote, Tony got to run long. Viva Anarchy!

(Sorry, had computer problems yesterday and didn't save the show. My bad. TK talked about, I'm guessing, golf and cicadas.)

We now return you to your regularly-scheduled program

Sorry for the lack of updates. Not only was I on vacation, but my laptop crashed.

However, I believe (knock wood) that I saved each day's Sports Reporters to my hard drive at home and should be able to recap the missing Mr. Tony moments in a few days.

Also, look for my on-site report from PTI HQ last Monday. Many funny anecdotes.
